How to Check the Lock Mechanism

Is the Lock Mechanism Preventing the Door or Lid from Closing on your Maytag Freezer?

(Style of lock may vary by model number)

  • To lock or unlock the freezer, you must hold the key in the lock while turning. The lock is spring loaded, so the key cannot be left in the lock.
  • Clear any frost or debris build up from lock mechanism that may be preventing Door or Lid from closing fully.
  • Unlock and open the Door or Lid, close and lock again.
